Annual 5k Cider Run

Valley Educational Associates has its annual fundraiser, The 5k Cider Run, each year in November. It is a great time to run (or walk) the Ashley Reservoir with family and friends while supporting programs and workshops for adults with developmental disabilities. Your registration and donations stay right here in the local community and 81% of your donation goes directly back into the programs. The 5k Cider Run offers cider donuts, apple cider, a light repas, cash raffles, coupons from local businesses, a timed race, and a kid’s fun run. In 2017, we had a record number of participants- 203!

Event registration opens on Wednesday, August 1, 2018
